Save the Date-The Big T'Do- Saturday, October 23rd,2021-6:00pm
No one was prepared for the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. With schools suddenly closed, many of our students and their families found themselves in need of financial assistance. The NGSF board reached out to the North Gwinnett Co-Operative on behalf of these families to try and help them in their time of need.
Thanks to the generous support of the North Gwinnett community from previous Big T'Do events, we were able to fund food and essentials for these families. Knowing they did not have to worry about these items alleviated a little stress during these unprecedented times.
Thank you, North Gwinnett, for helping us make this happen!
Being a student is hard enough without social media and a pandemic to make it more stressful. In an effort to teach elementary students how to cope with both life and what is occurring in the world today, NGHS students created children's books. The high school students took several books focused on social conscience and worked together to created a children's version. These books highlighted social awareness and how to handle life situations. The books centered on looking different, fitting in, making friends, feelings of being left out , sadness etc.
The NGHS students and teachers found themselves with a wonderfully well written and illustrated book and no funding to print copies for the schools.
The NGSF had available funds due to the 2020 pandemic. By pulling together, the project came to fruition and the books are in all North Gwinnett Elementary School media centers.
